Soaked rapid rooters in ro water for 6 hours. seeds soaked for 3 hours before planting in rooters.

Dec. 22: all 4 popped planted plugs in precharged coco
1ml each GH Grow Micro Bloom. 2ml calmag / gal 420 ppm

Jan.10 changed lights out for 1x 480w Mars Hydro LED.

Planning on topping the tops of each plant once more so get 8 tops. the "mainlined" plant will be topped a couple of times to get 8 tops. looking for a much cleaner, more tidy grow this time. So far these seedlings are kicking ass, probably good genetics. also i didn't cook them this time LMAO.

Jan.12 Started feeding as per veg week 2 in GH feed chart.

Thank you :)
Since I am running around trying to find a job, feel free to PM me if you need urgent help ok?!
Will do. Good luck in your search.

Bit of training today. I want to try growing one on its side so I did one of my sour diesel clones.
Tied the main lined blue rhino and did the second topping for her. So one more round of snips for her and that'll be it for training.
The others all got topped at the top 2 nodes for their last topping.
Going for 8 big neat and tidy colas for each of these girls this time.
Not sure how many I'm going for with the clone. Hopefully she's a sexy beast like her mama.

after some reading and getting worried i'm gonna stress my little girls, i decided to start a schedule of 18/6.

Last grow I ended up doing 24/0 for 1 month of veg, then 18/6 for 1 month. 2 months total veg. the first half being 24/0 does wonders especially if you want your plants to be topped early and often for a plateau of colas come harvest :)

Right on. That's pretty much how it's gonna be for me. but not out of planning as much as reading and getting paranoid. If i could keep the light on 24/0 without worrying i'd be happy as it's about to be -40c for about a week straight here and one of my heaters that i'd like on my feet is in their tent now lol.

They seem to like the sleep the past couple days. Also raised the light a bit and the leaves are all reaching now. Still getting used to the Mars light. The bloom light by itself is beautiful. Gonna pull it out for my next date lol.
Aloe Vera in the back. Use the gel for rooting clones.

my plants droop at near lights out, I think they have a resting mechanism
yeah they seem to know a couple hours before lights out is what i found. and will be praying most times before lights on. it's pretty cool.

feeding at 500ppm now. the GH dtw schedule was a little strong. couple yellow leaves but they look good. tied down the larger branches to try even out the tops a bit. still going for 8 tops per plant. not doing any more topping, just some light training and maybe some bending later on because i love the bug knuckles you get lol.
I'll get some pics of the clones later. one is looking like a beast already it's unreal.

These are the clones from what I think is a Chem 4 sour diesel( The BIG girl ) and a blueberry ( she's budding super slow ) The blueberry is growing very fast with very big leaves already. The SD I tied down is growing very slowly.

The main lined plant is finally growing tops 7 and 8. They're tiny compared to the rest. can't wait to see if this method is worth the extra grow time.

Little yellowing going on in general. i think its a combo of bad ratios to start out and maybe some heat. I have a heater in the tent because it's cold. been letting it ride a little to high i think.

The yellow leaves. This was the last one. Hoping someone knows what was causing it. Hopefully it's gonna be the last.

Hey there! Plants look great. I’ll tag along if you don’t mind. I’m curious if someone has any ideas on the yellowing. It’s always helpful to learn. Happy growing!
Yes please do. it's my second grow, the first is still under way. hoping to have learned a lot from the first and put it to use in the second. a little discouraged that i got myself some yellow leaves to be honest i thought i had vegging down lol. I"m still such a newbie.

I do think the problem was bad ratios of nutes. started to give a ratio of 321 grow micro bloom with additives the ppm come out to 950 a little stronger than i was going for but fed them with it today anyway. i wanna see what they can take.

Nothing wrong with that. Don't be discouraged, its always a learning game and every strain is different. Seeing what they can take then dialing it back is always good plan. I'm very sure you'll be all good!

My custom feed schedule. Still tuning it but I want to have everything documented incase my tds meter and pH meters go. It's in between the general hydroponics simple and expert drain to waste schedule.
I call it the sexpert schedule lmao
